Anyone near Boca?
 
I'll be replacing the cooling system in my 330i sometime in the next 2 or 3 weeks and was wondering if there's anyone in the area that has had experience with this particular project. I don't foresee myself having any problems with the work, just figured it would be nice to have somebody in the area with knowledge in case a problem arises. Even if you aren't able to help, I'd like to get to know some of the people in the local bimmer crowd so post up :hi:

I used to live there haha, but that was 10 years ago. I know, doesn't help.

What parts are you changing exactly? I did the thermostat, upper/lower hoses and expansion tank and it was pretty easy and straight forward.

Don't forget the rubber o-ring if you're replacing the lower hose otherwise it will squirt fluid out b/c the old ring is likely flattened and won't seal anymore.
I'm talking about the rubber ring that goes on the sensor pictured here

I basically just read through Mango's cooling system thread and am replacing everything listed in there. Radiator, water pump, hoses, pulleys, tstat, etc... Thanks for the advice though, I'll definitely keep that in mind.

Figured I'd bump this thread since it's already been viewed a ton and only got 1 reply. Anyone in the area interested in meeting up? I've been searching all over for meets and stuff but have yet to find any real leads. Looking to meet some people that are into cars, which seems to be a rare breed lately.
